Birds in Flight: An Installation by Matt Hebermehl

Jepson Center September 23, 2010 -March 23, 2011

Exhibition Closed March 2011

This fall, the Jepson Center’s Eckburg Atrium was transformed with an intriguing installation of five suspended, wooden birds created by community artist Matt Hebermehl. Incorporating both personal and public references, Birds in Flight represents strength, energy, and love, while also symbolizing Hebermehl’s journey as a local artist and the collective growth and vitality of Savannah’s contemporary art scene.

Hebermehl’s signature pattern and icon-based work has earned him awards and recognition from sources such as American Illustration and the Society of Illustrators, New York, and has been exhibited in cities throughout the country, including New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago. Several pieces of the artist’s work are held in the Telfair’s permanent collection.

This exhibition is sponsored by Juxtapoz Magazine.
